I'm sure I am like many of you in which for one reason or another I don't print my images at home. I was just curious where people go to get their photos developed.

Some of the places I use include

- adorama.com ~ they occasionally have $1.00 8x10 Sales and $2.00 11x14 Sales
- Costco ~ Consistent prices
- www.laxphotolab.com ~ $.49 8x10's and $1.50 11x14. They ship Priority Mail Same day.

A place like Lax Photo Lab I consider somewhat of a hidden gem because its just a local spot in LA. Was curious to see if anyone else had anything similar near them.

i use a lab down the road from me.
she is a small one person operation and does beautiful work.
i used to mail out to whcc, but the past few years have stayed close to home.
she's printed small as well as large images, and almost a year ago, she printed a whole show for me.
can't complain ...

What are your priorities: price, quality, or speed. It is diffficult to get all 3 these days. I get best results overall from Darkroom.com in San Clemente California.

Are you looking to print digital files or from a negative/trans?

Chicago had and maybe will have again this guy. (http://www.cswfilmsystems.com/)

His move is taking far too long.

Great quick service, up to 11x14. Color only.

I take mine to Foto Fayer in Vienna www.fayer.at, whenever I am on a business trip. Drop them in their mailbox before 8 a.m., pick up in the afternoon. The wait between trips helps me find a bit more critical distance towards the pictures.

Central Camera in downtown Chicago takes in film for processing. I never use them as I do my own B&W and C41 35 mm at Costco. I hope my Chicago color sheet film guy reopens this year...He was fast, 2 hours if you timed it all correctly.

Here is a service that develops any format and does great scans on roll film. By far the best roll film scans I have found. They also do flatbed scans on sheet film.

I have sent a few files to http://www.ilfordlab-us.com/

They print on Ilford RC and when you open the envelope you can smell the fixer...

Developing and printing are two different things. Developing usually refers to developing film with chemicals. Printing would refer to ether digitally printing or printing a photo from a negative in a wet darkroom?

So are you wanting to develop film, print from a negative or print from a digital file?

That is a good question. Ilford uses some sort of direct from digital to wet print enlarger., no negative involved. I am not familiar with them. A laser?
